Students in Intensive Art classes are currently working on a linocut project. These videos offer a useful introduction to the art of sculptor and printmaker Elizabeth Catlett. Elizabeth said “Art is important only to the extent that it helps in the liberation of our people. It must answer a question, or wake somebody up, or give a shove in the right direction.” Catlett was fiercely committed to social justice through art during her long lifetime. As you brainstorm ideas for your project, consider what issues you feel passionate about and how your art could be used to wake up others in your community.
